Alpha‐kinase 1 (ALPK1) agonist DF‐006 demonstrates potent efficacy in mouse and primary human hepatocyte models of hepatitis B

WuXi AppTec scientists recently contributed to a research study published in the journal Hepatology, characterizing the efficacy of prodrug DF-006 for treating chronic hepatitis B infection.

DF-006 is an orally active agonist of alpha‐kinase 1, a pattern recognition receptor involved in the stimulation of innate immunity.  The authors show that DF‐006 is efficacious in hepatitis B virus mouse models, without any indications of overt toxicity.
